Having pleased us all with his brilliant 'Indigo' album last year, Wild Nothing aka Jack Tatum has now unveiled a brand new single which was left off his recent full-length.
The new track 'Blue Wings' was recorded during the same sessions behind his latest full-length, but failed to make the cut upon release. Now the frontman has shared it as a standalone single.
Speaking about his latest release, the frontman said, “There were a number of songs that were kicking when I was finishing Indigo and ‘Blue Wings’ was very nearly included. I had sent the album off to mastering, but the song didn't sit right with me and I decided, at the last possible moment, to leave it off the album. It's intentionally a very bittersweet sounding song. I asked Ben Talmi who did the string arrangements on ‘Shadow’ to help out with this very simple dissonant string part I was hearing in my head which is now my favorite element in the track. It's a song about walking through to the other side of crippling self-doubt with the help of someone you love. It's a reminder to myself not to let things spiral, hard as it may be at times.”
